Riverside (Dave Douglas)Riverside ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A really great project from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a group dedicated to the legacy of reedman Jimmy Giuffre, and which certainly follows the spirit of his smaller combos without any piano! Riverside featuers the trumpet of Douglas and saxes and clarinet of Chet Doxas – a player who's ... read more CD

RM Jazz LegacyRM Jazz Legacy ... CD
Key Of Life (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
A totally wonderful jazz ensemble from Japan – one who definitely work in some of the older modes you'd guess from the "legacy" in their name, especially the hippest funky big band styles of the 70s – yet a group who also have a very fresh, individual vibe of their own! These ... read more CD

Max RoachLong As You're Living ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... $11.99
Seminal work by drummer Max Roach – recorded in 1960, at the time when he was leading one of his best groups ever! The material was recorded live in Germany with a quintet that includes Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, Stanley Turrentine on tenor, and Julian Priester on trombone – and the ... read more CD

George Robert & Kenny BarronGood Life ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
Not the first pairing of alto saxophonist George Robert and pianist Kenny Barron – but a set that may well be their best together – as it's got this tonal, textural depth that really gets at the maturing talents of both artists involved! And that's not to say that the previous DIW date ... read more CD

Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Really beautiful work from the team of Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – hardly the sort of stuff we might have heard from the players a decade or two before – and a sophisticated batch of tunes that has them stretching out in rich musical directions! There's little of the boppish roots of ... read more CD

Prestige/Universal (Germany), 1956. New Copy 5CD ... $24.99
Mid 50s genius from Sonny Rollins – 5 albums in a single set, all presented in LP-styled sleeves!

Michel RoquesChorus ... CD
Saravah/Core Port (France), 1972. New Copy ... $21.99
An amazing album from the legendary Saravah label – one of the imprint's lesser-known gems from the 70s, but a set that's got the same compelling mix of modes you'd find in their albums from Barney Wilen, Brigitte Fontaine, Pierre Barouh, or the Art Ensemble Of Chicago! Reedman Michel Roques ... read more CD

Michael RosenSweet 17 ... CD
Via Veneto (Italy), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
Guitarist Lage Lund is consistently one of our favorite contemporary musicians on his instrument – and even though he's not the leader on this set from tenorist Michael Rosen, his performance really helps shape the overall sound of the album! Lund's got this way of arching into the groove ... read more CD

Renee RosnesWritten In The Rocks ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – ... read more CD

Bjarne Rostvold TrioTricotism ... CD
RCA/Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the usual album you might expect from a group with a trio in the name – as there's no piano in the mix, and instead the album features some sparkling trumpet from the great Allan Botschinsky – heard here at the height of his youthful, modern powers! The combo's led by drummer ... read more CD
Also available Tricotism ... LP 24.99

Jim RotondiDark Blue ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A great little album from trumpeter Jim Rotondi – a set that delivers on all the promise we've always heard in his music – and also brings forward a bit more too! The album has Jim blowing in a quintet with some excellent vibes from Joe Locke – a player who really helps give the ... read more CD

The Rova Sax Quartet channel the sound of John Coltrane's legendary Ascension album – then take it into a whole new territory of expression, thanks to help from an international assortment of improvisers who join in on the performance!

Hilton Ruiz TrioGreen Street – Live At Jazz Unite Vol 2 ... CD
Jazz Unite (France), 1981. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A freewheeling live date from Hilton Ruiz – recorded in Paris at the start of the 80s, with an excellent rhythm section that features Art Davis on bass and Walter Perkins on drums! Perkins' drum work is especially nice – as sprightly and dynamic as Ruiz's piano – beautifully tied ... read more CD

John RussellJohn Russell With ... CD
Emanem (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98

The tracks were all recorded as part of a birthday celebration for the British guitarist – ... read more CD

Markus RutzSecond Impression ... CD
Markus Rutz, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
Wonderful work from the Chicago scene – a timeless effort with titles that are Chicago and Illinois prairie-centric in theme – and compositions musically rich enough to touch on some diverse strains of small combo jazz, from bluesy to bossa-steeped! Second Impression makes a heck of ... read more CD

Krzysztof SadowskiNa Kosmodromie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
A hell of a record from Polish organist Krzsystof Sadowski – one that mixes his own Hammond with wordless vocals, reeds, and rhythms – all in a style that really fits the spacey image on the cover! Key to the record is singer Liliana Urbanska – a vocalist with that higher range ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Krzysztof SadowskiThree Thousand Points (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest records we've ever heard from this Polish keyboardist – a set that has him stepping past the simple Hammond modes of his earlier years, and into a realm of much freer-flowing fusion! Sadowski still mostly plays Hammond on the set – but also a bit of Fender Rhodes and ... read more CD

Jamie Saft with Joe McPhee & Joe MorrisTiconderoga ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
An album inspired by the legendary John Coltrane album Live At The Village Vanguard Again – but a set that takes off in very individual directions, thanks to the spirit of the players! The group's led by pianist Jamie Saft – who's drawing strong energy from Alice Coltrane on the record ... read more CD

Joe SampleHunter ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $19.99
A fusion classic from keyboardist Joe Sample – exactly the kind of record that really helped him carve a name for himself away from The Crusaders! There's a vibe here that's a bit deeper than some of Joe's work with that famous group – keyboard lines that are more introspective at some ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)
Also available Hunter ... LP 2.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joe SampleVoices In The Rain ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99
Joe Sample's sitting at a grand piano on the cover, and that image is a nice tip-off to the sound within – an approach that has Joe hitting some more sophisticated acoustic passages at points, while still opening up into the soulful groove we'd expect from his legacy as a core member of The ... read more CD
